FOX Networks Group Asia Adds New Korean Blockbuster Movies


SINGAPORE: FOX Networks Group (FNG) Asia has acquired first and exclusive pay-TV rights to three record-breaking Korean blockbusters from Clover Films, including Train to Busan.

Train to Busan has been on the top of the Singapore box office for weeks since it opened early last month and is the highest-grossing Korean film in Singapore. FNG Asia also picked up Seoul Station, which is the animated prequel to Train to Busan, and The Wailing, produced by FOX International Pictures. These three movies will be made available to audiences in Singapore on SCM, and on-demand as well as online through the catch-up service SCM Play.

“The success of SCM has been its ability to be responsive to the changing appetites of the fans, while still staying true to its core promise of being the home of the biggest Asian blockbusters,” said Cora Yim, the senior VP of Chinese entertainment at FOX Networks Group. “Through this agreement with Clover Films, fans will be able to enjoy some of this year’s hottest Korean films, first and exclusively on SCM.”

Lim Teck, the managing director of Clover Films, said, “We are so proud to be collaborating with FNG on this exciting slate of Korean movies! We at Clover Films seek to bring the best Asian content to Singaporean audiences, and FNG has always been our best partner. We believe our Korean titles, especially the record-breaking movie Train to Busan, will achieve great ratings for FNG channels!”
